We have a winner! The annoying jam (to me, anyway) that Phil often eased into has a 13-beat rhythm. And now you all know my single favorite GD song. Nothing in all my experience of consuming music quite compares to the loping rhythm that Phil and the boys achieve during the jam after the lyrics--except when distracted by the 13-beat bit.

Does anyone know about this Misc. item here at the archive?
Five vault reels?

Looks like some kind of collection of "filler", there is some neat stuff here, check out the Thirteen Jam...

Hail fellow, well met! How frustrating for you to have your favorite version be an aud. I don't even want to listen to it, in case I feel likewise. That miscellaneous collection is available as a torrent at lossless legs:

The torrent text includes an analysis of time periods from which each bit might have come, based on lyrics and performance minutiae. There are no seeders at the moment, but their request reseed mechanism really works. I do remember liking the version on disc 1, is it?

I'm really bad at remembering the versions I like best, since I like them all so much, but I'll also put in a plug for the version from 3-17-68 on volume 6 of the download series. It has a gemutlich quality that I've thought might come from its having been tapped for part of the version on Anthem of the Sun, though I've never compared closely to check.

Just listened to the Caboose from 3/17/68 on my Ipod while taking my dog for a long walk. Definitely one of the best versions Cliff has heard! Vol. #6 is Cliffs favorite of the Deads Download Series...

You should check out the 3/29/68 Caboose, if Cliff can handle this Aud, anyone can...

In the friendliest and most supportive way possible, I ask: Does Cliff also prefer to be referred to by others in the third, rather than second, person?

That really IS quite good, and worth holding off 1973 for 10 minutes...

New Potato 3/29/68

I noted the ISB because Jerry actually said that he had heard it at a show which the ISB opened. This was in a general article about the Dead's music and influences that was published in one of the Rolling Stone wannabees. In 1968, Hangman's was perhaps the most popular--or one of the most--L.P.s Even though very few listen to the ISB, their music being really dated, their influence was major. For example, Robin Williams had a sitar a few years before George Harrison got hold of one, and the Eastern sounds permeated the ISB's music.

But since Jerry also took fistfuls of acid--who knows where he really heard what or what he really heard where?

Ask ALice--I think she'll know.
